    Question Any HTC One m8 users who switched to Nova launcher , Action, etc instead of Sense6? Why?

    I'm just curious as to whether or not i should get a launcher or if Sense is just fine. Which do you like? Have you used both ?

    I love blinkfeed, but got nova prime to check it out. both are fine, but if you love endless customizations, nova wins.
    I just switch back and forth.... lol. using blinkfeed at the moment. sense 6 is great.

    I just added Nova launcher yesterday. Both seem to be fine but it's nice to have options when customizing. Helps keep things fresh.

    This. Nova offers nearly endless cosmetic options. It's nice to change icon spacing, easily use complete sets of different icons, change transitions, borders, tray, etc. Plus, having used it on the last two phones it really seems to have very little overhead. I notice no lag at all.

    How do I set nova prime to swipe up for blinkfeed? I have it set for calculator right now, but don't see blinkfeed on the list to add it .

    Always Action Launcher for me

    1. The app drawer format is so much more efficient than anything else
    2. Shutters
    3. Customisation
    4. Australian Made

    I have tried Nova and Google Now (with xposed mods) but Action Launcher is the best

    Check this out and you should get the idea. I use the gestures in nova prime settings and have it do this when I swipe up. Hope this helps.

    I was happy with Blinkfeed at first, but I have Nova Prime from my previous phone so I loaded it up and have stuck with it. I can fit more on the screen and it has a Direct Dial widget that I really missed.

    I've used Nova for a long time... custom gestures is the primary reason, but changing the screen grid icon layout is also very nice, icon size, number of icons on the dock, number of dock pages, add custom themes... just to name a few things. Most of this is all about allowing users to customize their launcher, which HTC, Motorola, Samsung and just about everybody else does not allow or only gives users a couple things they can change.

    Try installing Google Now Launcher. I personally like it.

    Google Now will take one home screen for itself that shows all relevant cards that you have shown interest in.

    Other home screens can be configured with widgets/icons as you would do with any other launcher.

    For lock screen, not sure if you are fan of Facebook, Facebook's Home is also an option for lock screen only.

    I'm going to go against the grain here. I'm using Blinkfeed, but because the one I really liked is also fairly expensive as far as apps go. I tried the Next launcher and it was freaking amazing. It has custom grid arrangements (or go with "floating" icons that you can position wherever you want and rotate them too) and gesture control, but what drew me in was the 3D effects and the number of themes you can get. It has a 2D view mode as well, but even that has a number of 3D effects mixed in. Sure it's a bit of a heavy weight compared to others, but the M8 can handle the transitions and effects flawlessly without much impact on battery life. If you want something with a futuristic look and feel, this is the one... If you don't mind the price tag. You can download it for a free trial that gives you ample time to explore it. Most themes are also free, but even some of them have a price too.

    Did you figure it out yet from the info that was posted? Nova Settings > Gestures and Buttons > Swipe Up > Shortcuts > Activities > HTC Blinkfeed > Then scroll down to the one that is HTC BlinkFeed with Launcher under the title, it's the one right below Customize Highlights, tap it and you are good to go!

    I use Nova Launcher Prime and love it. It is the best launcher hands down.

    Just switched to Nova. I'm loving the ability to change the amount of rows and columns the home screen has. It's making things much easier to squeeze my widgets in.

    I used the sense launcher to start with as I really wanted to get used to useibg blinkfeed. After some time though I realised that I wasn't using it at all so then using the sense launcher was less important. Moved over to nova prime and enjoying it. The only think I miss is I quite liked the HTC clock and weather widget so shame they are no longer accessible. I used to like the now launcher on my nexus 5 so might go back to that. Tried it briefly on the one and thought the animations were a bit slow. I've got nova set up with the android L animations and really like them

    I'm using action launcher. I was really hesitant to ditch BlinkFeed because having the clipboard like feed RIGHT THERE was freaking amazing, but I just purchased the BlinkFeed shortcut on the play store and now it's just a swipe up to get to it. I like being able to customize my icons and LOVE action launchers menu and quick menu. I have one home screen arranged very neatly, and a swipe from right to left brings up all my other folders of common use apps and widgets. A swipe from the left brings up the app drawer. So, SO organized. I love it to death

    Nova launcher works best for me. I got s-off and unlocked bootloader. Nova seems to give me the best experience and not bloated.

    *shrugs*
    I tried all the launchers named in here (except Next...I'm not spending $17 on a launcher lol) and still always go back to BlinkFeed
    granted, i really like to stay up on new stories in technology, music, and sports
    so it helps me to not have to go to a bunch of different apps for news, i can just swipe right and see everything
    not to mention, i kinda like the layout of Sense the best out of all of them as well
    it's a good middle ground for me
    i like customization, but i don't need much on this phone, i've noticed
    and i've never been a major fan of stock Android...it feels like too bare
    different strokes for different folks though
